Knowing that ALL media outlets twist the the truth to suit their needs, this comes as no surprise? However, I didn't get to view either of the CPACS. So with that, are you the OP suggesting that they filtered out the real response to Ron Pauls candidacy with a negative response from the crowd from another convention? In other words, " tape dubbed " a " booing crowd " to Ron Pauls win?
I'm not questioning your position, and it would come as no surprise if they did " tape dubbed " a response to boost their ratings. I'm just trying to understand or at the very least get on the same page. The video you posted, I guess I don't understand what your claiming.
If anyone can shed some light that would be greatly appreciated.

Because Fox News is as much of a state manipulated news agency as CNN or MSNBC, they just lean a different political stroke to comfort peoples world views.
That's what happens when government facilitates and nurtures the growth of corporations; it starts from within, and then overgrows the host.

It's abuse of freedom of speech and freedom of press as far as I'm concerned. Isn't the very definition of news that is something factual?
That's Bill Hemmer, the smug FOX News journalist. Bio here: www.foxnews.com...=h-l

Here's a FOX executive who may answer to why this video was manipulated:

Unfortunately, the trust that members of our armed forces put in their government has been breached time and time again, and the recent budget vote represents another blow to veterans. Even as we send hundreds of thousands of soldiers into Iraq, Congress can't get its priorities straight.
It's easy to talk about honoring veterans and their sacrifices, even while the federal government treats veterans badly. Congress wastes billions of dollars funding countless unconstitutional programs, but fails to provide adequately for the men and women who carry out the most important constitutional function: national defense.
We can best honor both our veterans and our current armed forces by pursuing a coherent foreign policy. No veteran should ever have to look back and ask himself, "Why were we over there in the first place?" Too often history demonstrates that wars are fought for political and economic reasons, rather than legitimate national security reasons. Supporting the troops means never putting them in harm's way unless America is truly threatened.
